About Me

I’m a thirty-something married mother of one. My life is really pretty good. I have the basics. I have a good marriage, a nice house, and a wonderful little girl.

I’ve been to college. I wasn’t a teen mom. I don’t have a drug addiction or any unusual medical or mental diagnosis. I am really ordinary. (Boring.)

I’m a stay-at-home mom. I don’t really like it. I think there need to be more people who tell the truth about parenting. Not every child is easy. Not everyone likes to stay-at-home. Not every minute is blissful.

  1. Although I agree with Chris. You are anything but ordinary. Took me awhile to realize that everyone really is special and unique, including me….you are something special, friend. 🙂

  2. ‘Ordinary’ and ‘boring’ are in the eye of the beholder, of course, but I’ve learned that being a bit of both is nothing like bad. Your very willingness to pose the question answers it emphatically No, in my book: you have stories to tell, questions to ask, and a mind to create. I posted about so-called ordinariness specifically a while ago and I think I may have been writing about you as much as about me, so you might enjoy a peek!

    Thanks for coming by my blog and introducing yourself; I can see that I’ll enjoy what you have to offer here as well!
    Best to you,

    • Thank you for that, and I did ready your post on ordinariness, and I agree wholeheartedly.

      I think that sometimes boring isn’t a bad thing. Having had an interesting life, I’ve had vast tracts of time where I prayed for boring. Boring is safe and usually happier than people give it credit for.

      Interesting stories are rarely fun to live through.

  3. I love the honesty and vulnerability of your blog, and of course that makes you anything but ordinary or boring! Parenting is an odd, up and down, down, down sometimes up again journey and many people face challenges in parenting that are incredible! Thank you for you blog! 🙂
